Pursuit of Wellness: Intellectual
Activity: Roll the Dice with your Financial Life
When: February 1, 2013 10AM – 2PM
I wasn’t sure what to expect when I went to this event. When I got to the fourth floor of McCannel, I was welcomed by a few people with name tags. After I signed up for the chance to win a $100 gift card from the Bookstore, I talked to a guy named Andrew. Andrew explained to me that the event was the opening of the Financial Wellness office. He said that he and the other name-tag wearers were available to talk to students about their financial situations. Each of the financial advisors specializes in a certain area. Students can make appointments to talk about getting out of debt, planning for the future, and other financial matters.
As I have attended different events as part of the Pursuit of Wellness Challenge, I have learned about existing programs and new programs–like the Financial Wellness Office–that are available to all students to help with all dimensions of wellness.
